Central’s fill-in head coach Sean Potts made an early adjustment to up the tempo, which proved to be too much for the opponent to keep up with. Unfortunately, the next challenge against Cardinal O’ Hara, the 1 seed out of District 12, was too much. Central fel by a score ofl 61-49.

     “It’s hard to see it end,” Sean Potts, the acting head coach, said. “Working with these guys every day and then the fact that’s there’s no practice tomorrow is the killer to me. What do you do?”

Another senior, Bella Chimienti also received First-Team honors in the county. Junior Emily Crouthamel was awarded second team all county recognition.
